Discover the History and Mission of Fly Duluth and the Duluth Flying Club

Fly Duluth and The Duluth Flying Club was founded in 2015 by a group of passionate local aviation enthusiasts: Don Monaco of Monaco Air, Bill King and Kevin Kortuem of Cirrus Aircraft, Matt Ferrari of Atlas Air, and Pat Lawler of Endeavor Air. With a shared vision of providing the local aviation community with access to high-quality aircraft, flight instruction, and flight tours, they came together to create a business that not only fulfills that need but also fosters a sense of pride and camaraderie among local aviators.

The founders recognized the lack of access to quality aircraft rental and flight training in the area and decided to fill that gap by creating the Fly Duluth and The Duluth Flying Club. Their goal was not only to provide the services, but also to create a community of aviators who could share their passion for flying and provide a sense of belonging. With this vision, we offer rental of modern and well-maintained aircraft, flight training with certified and experienced pilots, and flight tours that cater to the interests of the community. Fly Duluth and The Duluth Flying Club have become the premier provider of flight services in the area.
